In another winner from the author of the bestselling If Life Is a Game/If Love Is a Game series, Carter-Scott gently expresses her wisdomDeven if she doesn't break any new ground in the inspirational field. Careful not to define success as financial prosperity, Carter-Scott eloquently encourages readers to realize their own goals and dreams, not society's vision for them. To that end, she offers simple, profound suggestions for identifying and attaining personally defined success. Her approach is more philosophical and less dogmatic, and her voice is more engaging, than those in many self-help books covering the same territory. Respectful of her readersDshe addresses them as intelligent adults capable of introspection, analysis and changeDCarter-Scott suggests challenging exercises for self-discovery (such as writing one's life story and identifying role models) as well as for finding one's gifts, overcoming limiting beliefs and ""stay[ing] positive."" Her comments on time management and working cooperatively with others are similarly valuable gems. Agent, Debra Goldstein at the Creative Culture. Simultaneous BDD Audio. (Dec.)
